, and wayne lapierre, head of the national rifle association, kelly and laperriere, only on fox news sunday and senate republicans go after one of their former colleagues who wants to be defense secretary. >> we write, that is a direct question, i expect a direct answer, yes or no. >> chris: we'll ask the panel if chuck hagel's nomination is in trouble and our power player of the week, a cheerleader for poetry, all right now on fox news sunday. >> chris: and, hello, again, from fox news in washington. president obama travels to minneapolis tomorrow to con his push for new gun control. and saturday the white house released this picture of the president skeet shooting at camp david which he says he does all the time. meanwhile, the national rifle association is fighting any new limits on guns. the first big legislative battle this year and today we will cover it in-depth. we'll talk with wayne lapierre, head of the nra in a moment. but, first, mark kelly, retired astronaut, navy captain and husband of former congresswoman gabrielle giffords who was shot two years ago. he and his wife launched
leaders on how to curb gun violence. this as nra's chief executive, wayne lapierre, continued his spirited defense of gun rights this weekend. speaking with fox news's chris wallace about that controversial nra ad that brought the president's children into the gun debate. >> the president's kids are safe, and we're all thankful for it. >> they also face a threat that most children do not face. >> tell that to the people of newtown. tell that -- >> you really think that the president's children are the same kind of target as every schoolchild in america? that's ridiculous and you know it, sir. >> you know, unfortunately, i think there are parents all over the school that -- all over the country that think their kids are entitled to the same amount of protection when they go to school. >> so they should have secret service? >> no, but what they should have is police officers or certified armed security in those schools to keep people safe. >> you talk -- one of the points of that ad that i want to ask you about is you made it a class argument. the rich, the elite. >> sure. >> they have bodyg
of a background check rely on fearmongering. nra chief wayne lapierre spread ridiculous lies on fox news sunday. >> what they'll do is they'll turn this universal check on the law abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. and law-abiding people don't want that. >> well, law-abiding people want a universal background check system. more than nine in ten gun households want one. more than eight in ten nra member says the same thing. the president is quick to point out the popularity of the law. >> we know for example from polling that universal background checks are universally supported just about. by gun others. the overwhelming majority of gunowners think that's a good idea. so if we have lobbyists in washington claiming to speak for gun owners saying something different we need to go to the source and reach out to people directly. we can't allow those filters to get in the way of common sense. >> the gun lobby is worried. the president is making headway on this issue, which is why his opponents insist on distracting the country with things like this. the white house released a p
a super bowl commercial that pointed out the rank hypocrisy of men like the nra's wayne lapierre who at one time was a vocal supporter of background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show, no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> the nra's most public response to this onslaught of factual statements was on sunday when it trotted out wayne lapierre to yet again repeat the same inaccurate and ill-informed statements to which the president was just referring. >> turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. >> there's no indication -- i understand you're saying that's the threat, but there's nothing that anyone in the administration has said that indicates they're going to have a universal registry. >> and obama care wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax, was it? >> it was the supreme court that said that. >> let's get to our panel now. mark glaze is the director of mayors against illegal guns which is responsible for that super bowl ad. and michael
think that everyone acknowledges we should do something with background checks. >> not everyone. wayne lapierre, head of the nra says the president's proposals won't stop gun crimes. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it's never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. >> but mark kelly, husband of former congresswoman gabby giffords says they need to be extended to gun sales at private shows. >> since 1999, people were prevented from getting a gun because of a criminal record or history of mental illness. >> something even the senate's top democrats, majority leader harry reid has not endorsed. >> i did isn't vote for it last file because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> kelly says they need to pass the ban. >> i spent 25 years in the military. i know the value of having an assault weapon. it's to kill a lot of people very quickly. they're way too readily available. >> lapierre says they're to help keep americans safe. despite the fact that polls show most nra members do not share that position. anne-marie? >>> coming up on the "mornin
. >> reporter: that's wayne lapierre in 1999. he, of course, is basically the chief voice of the nra still today. he was on fox news sunday, this morning. he was indicating his opposition to universal background checks. obviously. it's not what he said in 1999. his fear is there would be a gun registry and the government would insert itself in what should be a private matter for individuals. >> that radical change of thought. you know the picture that jay carney tweeted, a lot of people were talking about it. >> reporter: there were a lot of people talking on it. if you go on social media, i'm sure you heard about the skeet shooting. we reached out to the nra after that photo was put out. one picture does not erase a lifetime of supporting every gun ban and every gun control scheme available. the white house would challenge that characterization of the president's policies on guns. he is a strong supporter of the second amendment. >> many thanks as always. >>> new on "meet the press," panetta gave his confirmation to chuck hagel. >> the political knives were out for chuck hagel. what disappointe
've heard from nra's wayne lapierre that is something that they are not for, in fact the nra has gone so far as to say it's in the in support of any restrictions at all whatsoever on guns. martha,. martha: we know that the president, kelly is going to run into headwinds even with democrats in congress on this issue. what is his plan to try to get it through? >> reporter: i think we are seeing that plan start taking shape today with his trip to minneapolis. the president will likely continue these campaign-style stops at various cities that have been plagued with gun control, minneapolis being one of them and already taking action of course to deal with this gun control problem, the gun violence in that city. the president will continue to push for this. he will not try to introduce any legislation himself, he wants congress to do that e wants congress to step up to the table and go ahead and offer some of its plans that he has in place. the president would like to see congress act or enact a ban on assault weapons, high kpwas te capacity magazines and a universal background check. senate maj
was shot with a bullet after round number 13. >>chris: as you know, wayne lapierre will be on the next segment and he says we had an assault weapons ban for 10 years. it didn't work. >>guest: well, i don't know if it worked or not. i haven't looked at all the statistics. much more difficult forat if it criminals and the mentally ill to get assault weapons and lie-capacity magazines and guns in general, we will save lives. i served in the military for 25 years. i know the value of having an assault weapon. a gun that can kill many people many quickly. i do not believe the average person on the shoot including criminals and terrorists should have easy access to those weapons. in cases of mass shootings when an assault weapon has been used we know we typically twice the number are shot so more people are died than injureed. there are already 9,000 federal laws on the books but they are not enforced. >> i agree with mr. lapierre on that point laws that are not enforced. 1.7 million have failed background checks since 1999 and not enough are prosecuted. they should be prosecuted and there s
checks. >> universal background checks? >> yeah. we need to increase that. >> wayne lapierre hit the sunday show circuit and taken to task over the ad asking obama's daughters protected by guns at school. why isn't your child? >> the point of that ad was this. it wasn't picking on the president's kids. the president's -- >> it mentions them. >> they're safe and we're all thankful for it. >> they also face a threat that most children do not face. >> tell that to the people in newtown. tell that -- >> do you think that the president's children are the same kind of target as every school child in america? that's ridiculous and you know it, sir. >> even the xherms last night with the gun debate. >> the nra once supported background checks. america can do this. for us. please. >> starting with michael sheer for "time" magazine. welcome. >> thank you for having me, toure. >> one of the things that the senate is proposing a curbing sales in states with relaxed laws to buyers in states with tougher laws. this is not something that the president's been pushing already. sounds interesting.
